    The notebooks are nice and sleek to look at, unlike the performance after a re-install of the OS...

    I won't buy another one. My Aspire 5100-series is dog-slow, and out of the box wouldn't even work right half the time. I had to remove the Acer power-management software and install Notebook Hardware Control before it'd quit freezing up. It had something to do with the display brightness settings. Anyway, to ship a product that's crippled by its own software is unforgiveable (as is NewEgg's notebook return policy, but that's another story).

    If Acer took some of their profits and invested it in decent customer support I would be happy for them... :/

    okay Acer low-end to about mid-range laptop/desktop are complete garbage BUT their upper mid-range to high-end laptop/desktop are pretty nice and even better when you look at the price to hardware ratio your getting the best bang for your buck compared to a lot of the other competitors so over not to shabby.

    After taking 3 months to fix a hard drive under warranty, I wouldn't recommend them to anyone (the reason it took so long was because they kept on breaking the screen!)

    I work at a computer shop where we used to sell lots of acer products, but now we sell hardly any acer's as we've had too many problems with them. My dad has/had an Aspire 5101AWLMI that he bought in feb, and its spent about 2 months away for repair in total since he's had it. Several times they just ran the restore disc when it had serious hardware/electrical problems. I wouldn't reccomend their laptops, but their turnaround on desktops is pretty good, and they do some nice monitors.
